Class 1

Teachers – Mrs Rachel Garner & Mrs Jo Tetlow

Spring Term 2019 – Second Half

Welcome back after the half term break – we hope you’ve had a good week.

This half term our topic is called Jack and the Beanstalk. We’ll be basing some of our work on the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. This story will enable us to learn about different story characters, story settings and the importance of the beginning, middle and end of a story.

We’ll also be learning about the seasons and what plants need to grow. We have a trip planned to West Town Farm, at Ide, where we’ll get to learn about the whole cycle of sowing, growing and preparing food to eat.

There’s a science week coming up this half term where we’ll get stuck into lots of different investigations to start us asking questions and wondering why things happen the way they do!

Please see the Curriculum topic web below for more information about what we’ll be learning about. Click image to enlarge.

Mid year reports will be coming home on Friday 8th March and Parents’ evenings are on the 11th and 14th of March. We look forward to seeing you all.

Huge thanks to parents who have been able to spare time to read in school with children at the beginning or end of a day – much appreciated and so very valuable, thank you. If you are able to give us any of your time, we will snap you up!
